GREEN INSTITUTE ON AN AFFORESTATION DRIVE
Category : NEWS
As the build up to the National Tree planting day to be held on the 7th of December which will be held under the theme “Enhancing Climate Change Resilience Through Agroforestry”, Green Institute in partnership with African Youth Initiative on Climate Change Zimbabwe (AYICC) carried out a tree planting activity at Nyanda Primary School in Masvingo West on the 15th of November 2019.The objective was to sensitize young people on the realities of climate change and the role they have to play to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change. The aim of using education to carry the climate change messages is to create a new generation of youth whose behavior will be climate change compliant. Notable effects of climate change such as unpredictable weather patterns bringing in a series of heat waves, droughts ( El nino),floods (cyclone idai) where key in educating the children. Young pupils were taught on the importance of tree planting and forest conservation for them to take the initiative to their communities not limited to tree planting day but being an everyday habit. Trees in essence serve as the supporting base of both human and non-human species. Trees and vegetation play a pivotal role in balancing the ecosystem, most importantly producing our much-needed oxygen, as well as being an instrumental tool in enhancing the smooth flow of the water cycle. As part of the activity pupils planted Kenyan Crotone trees around the school yard and were later given a task to plant 2 seeds each to be planted one at their homestead and the other brought to the school as we continue with the afforestation program. On the 7th of December, Green institute will take part in the national tree planting day by planting a targeted 10000 trees across Masvingo Province.
Plant a tree to make this world carbon free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
